Day 16: Thank God For Grandparents

Grandparents are heaven sent. Eli, Caleb and Josh were gone for a better part of the day today helping Grandpa Rich to do some work around the house that he is getting ready to sell. They hauled buckets full of gravel used as fill in the crawlspace. Josh bonked his head on a pipe and got a nice bump, but all else went well. The kids even made $25 bucks each(!) and were treated to lunch. All I heard on the way home was how nice Nana and Grandpa are and how 'we have the best and nicest grandparents in the whole wide world'. Sweet.

I stayed pretty much around the house today except for a quick outing to the bank and a run through Mc D's for Happy Meals for Gracie and Sam. Both of them were more interested in the Kung Fu Panda toy that came with their meal however, but that's the way it always is :)

Eli's leg seems to be healing nicely--although it looks very sore. He thinks the stitches are really cool, especially since the thread is blue. Only 9 more days and then he'll be sporting an awesome scar.

I'm going to brave the movies again tonight, only I'll just be taking the older 3. Hubby will have the privilege of giving me a break from the little ones. (they have been driving me absolutely batty and hubby has been gone more than he's been home) We're going to go and see 'Nim's Island' at the dollar theater. It looks pretty good and adventurous, so I'm sure the boys will love it.

I've had to really come down hard on Gracie these last couple of days for repeatedly saying 'this/that sucks'. (a phrase she picked up from her biggest big brother) Unfortunately, punishing her has not been very effective just yet. Any ideas??

Well, gonna run to get this show on the road.
